Hi all

I am happy to release version 0.3 of AutoForms.

AutoForms is a library to ease the creation of Graphical User
Interfaces. It does this by using generic programming to construct GUI

The AutoForms user creates an ordinary algebraic data type (ADT), which
should reflect the data model of an application. From this ADT AutoForms
automatically constructs a GUI component, by using the structure and
identifiers of the ADT. To facilitate this construction, AutoForms uses
the "Scrap your boilerplate" approach to generic programming. 

What happened since release 0.2?

* Moved website to http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/AutoForms
* Closer integration with WxHaskell
* Bug-fixes
* Cabalized AutoForms
* Handles sum-types. E.g. data Foo = Foo Int | Bar Int [Char]
* Added a custom monadic interface to AutoForms
* More examples
* Layout managers
* Plus many other changes

See http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/AutoForms for more information.
